tv: wolverine and the x men

6

[X-23] was originally created by writer Craig Kyle for the X-Men: Evolution television series before debuting in the NYX comic series in 2004. […] The characterization went for the opposite of Wolverine, where instead of a man “older than we know” with no memory of his past and the life that he lost, X-23 was a young girl “shackled to the murders she’s committed” whose entire life revolved around the project that made her a killer. Kyle added that the character is “Pinocchio for Marvel Comics, she’s a samurai sword trying to become a real little girl.”

“Laura saw you two making-out...” - Old Man Logan x Reader

#6. Getting caught making out with Logan for @jobean12-blog.

At first I started to write a story with “normal” Logan, but then…Well I got inspired by (film) Old Man Logan and Laura, so…yeah. Though it didn’t turn out how I initially thought it would, it turned out more…serious than funny, but like, with a movie like Logan as an original material…you know ^^’. . Hope you’ll still like it and will be ok with the Old Man Logan blahblahblah :

__________________________________________________

You couldn’t even recall the last time you had a moment like this…Was it over a year ago ? Before Charles lost control of his power and destroyed everything he ever build ? Before all your friends died ? Before you, Logan and the professor had to run away from the X-Mansion and hide because of what happened ? Right before you called Caliban for help maybe ?

You couldn’t remember. But it was hell of a long time ago.

Yes, Logan and you hadn’t had a moment of intimacy like that in ages…

Ever since the Xavier’s school incident.

This was so refreshing. So nice.

Feeling his tongue in your mouth, his body flushed against yours, his hands roaming your body, his smile in the kiss as your grip tightened around him.

It almost felt like old times. When things were easier. When things weren’t so complicated. When it was just you and your loved ones, living an almost normal life in the mansion, saving the World on a regular basis…

But this time was long gone, and you definitely cherished that fleeting moment you had right now with your Wolverine.

*******************

It wasn’t really meant to happen. It kinda just did. Which made it even greater than  it would be if it was planned.

Since you had to run away from the X-Mansion over a year ago, you and Logan rarely had time for yourselves.

He was working really late everyday, and when he came home, was too tired to do anything else but sleep. And you had quite busy days too, working your ass off as well to be able to buy the sun seeker one day, and leave this godforsaken place.

It’s a shame that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is one of the worst superhero films ever made, because it also contains one of the best superhero films never made: right there during the opening credits. 

 In the first couple minutes of Origins, we’re treated to a montage of Wolverine and Sabretooth fighting alongside one another through a series of battles plucked straight out of your 10th grade history class. They survive an infantry charge during the American Civil War, a nighttime raid on German trenches during WWI, Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasion, and even their own execution during the Vietnam War.

Screw a two-hour movie – that’s an amazing TV series. Wolverine and Sabretooth, surly, stubbled, almost literally grizzly immortal soldiers bantering their way through every war in history – and also claw-mauling Nazis. Plus, for long-term drama: Comic book readers know these literal brothers in arms eventually become bitter enemies – imagine experiencing that heartbreak firsthand, after binge-watching several seasons of manly super-bonding. Instead, we got the worst possible version of Deadpool: One literally without a mouth. Whose brilliant idea was that? And how fucking fired are they? We hope it’s “a lot.”

Here’s the conclusion to the Momstique Saga.  I’m not sure if I captured Rogue’s voice and personality right since I haven’t read a lot of comics with her yet and most of my knowledge of her comes from the XMCU, Wolverine and the X-Men TV series, and pop culture in general, but I felt it was important to bring her in to this storyline.  Big sis Rogue will protect her blue little brother from everything, even from her foster mother.  Several people including @babybells231 have asked if Rogue is a member of the KPS, and now she officially is!  Rogue’s appointment as the Captain of the KPS Mystique Special Task Force is also the result of this KPS comic.

Rogue is older than Kurt, right?  I’m not entirely sure?  She referred to him as a “little brother” in X-Men Evolution, but that doesn’t mean he’s younger in the comics ‘verse…

My comics are rapidly becoming their own X-Men universe with their own continuity.  Welp, hope y’all are keeping up okay, hahaha. ^^;;

Better (Logan Howlett x Reader)

Word Count: Around 4k

Rating: M

Song I listened to while writing: “Same Old Same Old” by The Civil Wars

Warnings: Drinking, swearing, mention of bullet wound

Excerpt:  And maybe it’s the time, or the stress of the conversation, or the barely perceptible hum of pre-storm tension that’s been ever-present whenever the two of you are in the same room since that day in the diner, but suddenly, something is making you very aware of the older man in a way that you weren’t before. It’s something in the air. Something in the air has changed, gotten thicker or stronger or more pressing, but somehow you can feel it, and you get the feeling that somehow—somehow—Logan can, too.

Who is X-23?

Laura Kinney, also known as X-23 (or Talon, a long time ago) is a member of the X-Men. She’s a genetic clone of Wolverine, and her codename stems from what the Facility who created her called her. She was their 23rd attempt at cloning Wolverine. She naturally has similar powers to Logan, including a healing factor, superhuman strength and senses, and bone claws. Like Wolverine, her claws have been coated in adamantium. But unlike him, she does not have adamantium throughout her whole body, only her claws. And she only has 2 on each hand, but she has 1 claw in each foot.

The evil people at the Facility raised her as an assassin. She’s killed all over the world (examples: 1, 2). There’s a trigger scent that the Facility who created her used to force her into a berserk killing frenzy, and made her kill her surrogate mother with it (pictured here, they’re really sad pages though 1, 2).

Laura may have been forced to be a killer when she was a child, but she’s actually not a bad person. She’s very selfless and wants to help others (though that selflessness is in part due to not even caring much for her own well-being). Like above, where she’s willing to sacrifice herself so that Sue Storm can have her daughter Valeria back. Laura is still very willing to kill the bad guys though (1, 2). She’s been through a lot over the years, and has gone through some great character development. 

Some of X-23′s relationships include a kinda father/daughter relationship with Wolverine,  friendship with Gambit, Dust (Sooraya Qadir), and Jubilee

Laura is a special character, because her first appearance wasn’t in the comics. She debuted in the early 2000′s cartoon X-Men: Evolution (pictured above). Also, her and her mom’s skin tones were considerably darker in that show compared to her very white appearance when put into the comics, she used to be a bit brown. X-23 was also a great playable character in the videogame Marvel vs Capcom 3, voiced by the famous Tara Strong

EDIT: This was originally written in 2015. More recently, X-23 had a huge role in the 2017 Wolverine movie, Logan

Fun Fact: When she attended school with her cousin for a little while, she was taught by the two guys (Jamie and Adam) from that Mythbusters TV show, no lie. (1, 2)

X-23 has grown a lot since she was first introduced, and is a really great character. One of my favorite mutants. You can check out my Laura Kinney tag if you’re interested in seeing more of her. Or my Who Is That Character tag for more write-ups on Marvel superheroines.

My prediction for what happened to the X-Men and Brotherhood goes somewhat like this...

-Xavier and Beast are searching for Magneto somewhere in another country.

-Kurt is laying low in a church, possibly.

-Raven’s already impersonating someone in a position of authority

-Jean is either dead, or she and Scott are in hiding together.

-Ororo is definitely not in Wakanda because Movie/TV rights.

-Victor is likely hiding and/or working low-key as a hired gun/assassin/mercenary of some kind.

-Wolverine? Probably growing out his sideburns and being dragged into an adventure with Kitty Pryde.

-Iceman? At your local convenience store hiding in the freezer.

-Angel? Probs hiding out w/Psylocke.

-And finally, he’s sorta not an X-Man but I’m guessing Deadpool is, being Deadpool.

DC’s Static Shock

Or otherwise known as an abject lesson to writers and creators of color to not sell your idea to white people.

Before I get to the actual comic, I’ll just do a little history lesson. Milestone Comics was originally a black owned comic company that noticed that there were not many people of color as super heroes and if they were, they were presented stereotypically(Sam Wilson, Black Vulcan, Luke Cage, Misty Knight, and etc) or were pretty much non-existent(Jon Stewart, Storm(I want you to name one Storm centered storyline before the 90s…yeah, I fucking thought so)) or were just flatout fucking racist(Samurai, El Dorado, Apach Chief…like I am not even joking). So Dwayne McDuffie created a whole host of superheroes of color that range from Icon, Xombi(Korean American boy with nanomachines) Rocket, The Blood Syndicate(imagine the X-Men with Bloods and Crips…yeah I bet Wolverine doesn’t sound so badass now), but the most successful of all was Virgil Hawkins aka Static Shock.

Then Dwayne McDuffie sold the rights of Milestone comics to DC. He got a lot of flack from other black owned comic companies, but Dwayne said fuck it and he was about to get this money, playboy! And it worked out just fine. He got a extremely successful television show for Static and Static shared the fucking screen with the Justice League. 

Static was probably the most successful Modern hero of our fucking generation. Fuck Peter Parker’s crying ass, Static was the teen superhero of the generation. A black kid with locks from Compton Los Angeles look alike with a gay white sidekick(Oh yeah if you didn’t know Richie was gay…now you know)was the face of superheroism for an era. It beat out fucking Pokemon. NYUGGA! This was better than Barack Obama. But then Static was cancelled at the peak of his celebrity. Want to know why? Of course you do. Well you see the point of Saturday morning cartoons other than entertain you for a couple of hours so your parents can stay in bed and get their freak on was to sell toys and white boys(the main consumers of action figures) don’t buy toys of black characters. Yes, I am not making this up. I have never seen a Static Shock action figure. I have never seen an ad for such. I have seen plenty of fucking Batman action figures, but not Static Shock, their number 1 rated fucking show! WB didn’t even fucking try! Grrr. Of course Virgil appeared in Young Justice and teamed up with the more politically correct and just flat out better versions of Samurai(Asami), Big Chief(Tye Longshadow), and El Dorado(Eduardo Dorado) and formed the Runaways. Sadly, this was short lived and for the same reason as the previous show just a slightly different. Young Justice never got a third season because girls were it’s main audience and instead of catering towards them and making toys that little girls would be more apt at buying, they decided that girls just don’t buy action figure toys so this awesome show was over. Grrrrrr!

So what about the comics….well when Milestone Universe integrated with Mainstream DC Universe, McDuffie realized that DC was like pro wrestling booking. If it interfered with the big 3, then your story got no development. There was so much red tape that McDuffie had to plow through to even receive the benefits of being a part of such a prestigious universe. Static couldn’t work with the super popular characters like Superman or Batman. Static could not use their villains or anything. He had to work with lesser known heroes or B-list characters in spite of 1.) Static was by no means a B-List hero and 2.) he might as well stayed in the Milestone Universe if he had no relevance in the DC universe. Then they had Virgil join the Teen Titans…which did absolutely nothing for him.Then Dwayne McDuffie died and so did the comic series. Then New 52 happened.

New 52 decided to reboot Static and they did so by removing everything that made him special. They removed him from his cast and placed him in New York with some sort of continuity, but different takes. They changed his costume and his board and gave him the most generic villains on the planet. New 52′s Static only lasted 8 issues meanwhile misogynistic and horrible debacles like Red Hood and the Outlaws are still going on today(It’s bullshit). Static Shock and Milestone comics was created to recognize that minority characters can be multifaceted without ignoring their race and the racism they face. I am not talking about a literal scene or panel where person of color confronts a racist. I am talking about when Static goes to Africa for the first time and tells Richie about how empowered he feels and for once, he is not a black kid, but just a kid in Africa. Static’s entire origin mimicked CRASH methods on how LAPD wrongly imprisoned and infiltrated and terrorized black people. You notice how many of the Bang Babies where people of color or urban? Then you have Static facing racism from the police. Static sagging his pants thus recognizing that he is of the hip-hop community. Static being unapologetic-ally black and it was awesome and DC could not capture that magic again.

Static was special and DC dropped the ball because no one knew how to write him. Writing him meant that you had to think outside your own experiences for white authors and while they can talk about aliens and cyborgs and mutants, they can never understand what it is like to be black, Static went from our greatest modern hero of our generation in fiction to a cautionary tale about racism in comic books.
